What is this baboon torture division
Baboon Torture Division started in 1998 as an improvised 5 piece noise band playing Steve Biloba’s circuit bent kids toys at a punk show. It was meant to be the first and last appearance of Baboon Torture Division as a collective. Meanwhile, Steve was babysitting a super cheesy 90’s techno keyboard and used his computer to make it play Nintendo music. The recordings were overdubbed with circuit bent embellishments and played on late night college radio. The station director offered to release the music on his fledgling record label, and when put on the spot for a name, Baboon Torture Division seemed like the right choice.
